Chrome 12: more GPU acceleration and safer browsing

Postby Antony » Wed 08 Jun, 2011 11:51 am

Google has updated the stable Chrome to build number 12.0.742.91 with new security, privacy and graphics acceleration enhancement. According to Google Chrome Blog, Chrome now warns users before downloading certain malicious files “without Chrome or Google ever having to know about the URLs you visit or the files you download.”

The team has also advanced Chrome’s GPU-assisted hardware acceleration to include 3D CSS elements on Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Windows Vista or later. Finally, Google has worked closely with Adobe to provide greater control over local storage for Flash Player’s Local Shared Objects directly from Chrome’s settings, without having to visit a special page on Adobe’s site to tweak your settings .

Remember: Google pushed its own WebM video codec as open-standard, at the same time, integrating Adobe's proprietary Flash. (related thread: Google's Chrome hypocrisy move)
